Aljamain Sterling, my boy, is putting his UFC bantamweight championship on the line against Henry Cejudo, the former champ-champ himself, in the main event of UFC 288 this Saturday. It’s been over three years since Cejudo stepped into the octagon, and the tension is high. Who will come out on top and claim that title?
My associates over at MMA Fighting, Mike Heck, Alexander K. Lee, and José Youngs, take on these burning questions and get you prepped for UFC 288. We break down the Sterling vs. Cejudo main event, speculate what each fighter has on the line besides that shiny gold belt, and figure out who needs the W more. There’s also talk about where Cejudo will go with a loss, and of course, we can’t forget about the five-round co-main event between Gilbert Burns and my boy Belal Muhammad. I’m excited to see how that one plays out, and there’s plenty more intriguing matchups on the card to discuss.
